He should be proud. He was certainly bigger than that bass drum.

Boo. First Vic Firth and now Remo. What an innovator, music changed greatly because of his drum heads.
I can't imagine imagine playing with calf skin heads in the 21st century.

I saw the news.

Very sad indeed.

Remo did so much more than just make drum heads.

He gave back to the community in big ways.

From supplying music schools with heads, to a free drum circle for little kids hosted at the Remo facility once a week, and other programs. He would even check in on the drum circles in person from time to time, making sure all the kids were enjoying themselves.

As Les Paul was to the recording studio Remo Belli was to the drum.

He had a very nice smile, and I like to think that means a lot to me.
